Dating postcards backs dating srarch in tanzania

If your postcard has a stampbox, it may have words or marks denoting what paper was used.A postcard or post card is a rectangular piece of thick paper or thin cardboard intended for writing and mailing without an envelope. There are novelty exceptions, such as wood postcards, made of thin wood, and copper postcards sold in the Copper Country of the U. state of Michigan, and coconut "postcards" from tropical islands.

These presumably sold in larger numbers but, again, I have rarely seen any that have been sent through the post.
